Solid reputation, good benefits, but constant restructuring
Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 13, 2016
MDLZ has a great corporate reputation and is an extremely ethical and responsible company. Like others in its industry, it's been under constant pressure to cut costs and streamline operations, and the ongoing restructuring over the past several years has taken a toll on people--but company has been delivering better performance in the past few years as a result, and it's clear there's some culture change happening.
Corporate reputation, highly ethical, good benefits.
Ongoing restructuring, intense pressure to cut costs and do more with less.
Merchandiser part time (Current Employee) – Dallas-Fort Worth, TX – December 29, 2015
A typical day at work is going into big box retailers and grocery stores, doing deliveries, re-stocking, displays, etc. Since Mondelez took over after they split, has not been that favorable. Part time employees are treated like they do not matter, the hours are often cut without warning. We do not get bonuses like the full time merchandisers too. You can be the best part time merchandiser with the best reviews from the company and stores and not move up the ladder. It is a sad reality. The raises are minimal at best. And the corporate culture needs to be overhauled. There really is no hard part about this job, it is a no brainer. But one thing I would change is letting part time merchandisers know about products coming out. Give us the same respect that the full time merchandisers get. We work just as hard, we deserve that too.
You will be physically merchandising, writing orders, covering sales reps vacations. Not an ideal job if you want to have a personal life because of traveling to a different area each week (or sometimes each day) and not knowing until the last minute.
good pay & benefits
physical work, some 12 hour days, poor communication from management, unknown schedule, must always be available for emails/calls
Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – March 30, 2016
This is a great company to work and grow with. They really care about their employee's. You can advance your position with the company based on skills not seniority. Their sales department train program is very detailed.
Title - Sales Service Representative (Current Employee) – Idaho – March 1, 2016

Sanitation Supervisor (Former Employee) – Henrico County, VA – March 10, 2016
Skilled hourly workforce with poor leadership in place at all levels. Focus on supervisor and manager hiring was not on leadership and experience capability, but Degree. Many managers had no food manufacturing experience or even Lean experience.
Production Operator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 22, 2015
I have worked here for a little over 2 years, and from the time I started until now it has changed drastically. The supervisors and upper management don't care about you in any way. They force people to work 16 hour days(almost everyday), then when you have an accident or past out at work they say it's your fault. There is absolutely no job security there, in fact they are about to lay 600 employees off in the early new year. The pay and benefits are excellent, but sometimes that isn't enough to keep people.
benefits and pay
no life outside of work, no job security, and not the safest place to work
Forklift/Backup Position Leader (Current Employee) – Loves Park, IL – October 7, 2015
Due to the global aspect of the facility some products are slowly shifting to other facilities around the globe causing concern to many employees. The income is amazing here but the stress levels continually increase with the worries of relocating products. The management is pretty fair as they have attempted to give me and others a chance to grow with the company. Overall a solid place to work.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Alabama – April 1, 2016
Long hours, friendly cusotmers, good pay, poor scheduling when it comes to managment scheduling coverage for you vacations and sick time off... must be willing to work hard to grow your own sales and relationships because merchandising help is poor.
never enough help, have to work even when u are sick with dr note
The company is laying off employees and moving them outside the states.
Stockhandler (Current Employee) – Addison, IL – March 20, 2016
Job security has become scarce. The work environment is open and the employees makes the job fun and get the job done. WAS a worthy place to look forward to retiring from. Management makes the work schedule very unpleasing. Totally not flexible with inconsistent hours on a weekly basis.
Friendly co-workers, Pay
Changing hours suddenly, Low job security, and Union
Sales Service Representative (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – March 14, 2016
The training is excellent but it is difficult long term. Very physical, high pressure work. Hours can get really long. An average day would be around 9 to 10 hours. Thankfully no weekends if you get full time work.
Logistics Supervisor (Current Employee) – Haverhill, MA – July 1, 2015
A typical day at work consists of comunication with drivers and District Managers in regards to deliveries as well as comunication with service providers to go over the fleet and day to day operation with the warehouse personnel.
The co-workers and co-managers have constant comunication since the day to day operation consists on everyone getting involved and helping on the situations that arises.
The hardest part of the job is the constant priority changes but as a team it always gets worked out
The most enjoyable part of the job is the one on one daily engagement with employees.
Not the same as it used to be under Nabisco or Kraft
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Mid-Atlantic Region – June 5, 2015
A typical day of work for a Sales Rep is Monday through Friday and on call anytime you are off. Does not matter if you are on vacation, a weekend, or holiday. Stores call, manager expects you to keep the company phone on you at all times. Good is always not good enough.
Working for Mondelez you need to learn about change. Every couple years there is new policies, change in management and more and more changes.
Management lives by reports, you ask for help you don't get it and management expects you on call 24/7. Upper management such as the regional director at retail always want the district manager to perform write up and always threaten to fire you.
There is no enjoyable part of the job.
tuition reimbursement, company car, paid time off
Terrible benefits, no work life balance, always change, worry about loosing job, no promtion opportunites unless your female or have a hispanic last name, lack of compensation
I worked in manufacturing for Mondelez and it is a 24/7 process. Lots of weekend overtime, but long hours everyday - and work doesn't really stop at the end of the day. The hourly employees are in a very strong union which makes new projects difficult to implement.
A typical day as a Sales Rep for Mondelez International starts at around 7am. The rep goes from store to store to stock the shelves with Nabisco products and ensure the product is executed properly, then the rep writes an order for the next delivery and communicates any changes in the ad with store management. Sales Reps for Mondelez do not usually get to work with other employees, they are out on their own in the field on a daily basis. All company communication is made through emails and phone conferences.
work with little or no supervision, start at your own time, control of daily workload
You are out on the road for most of the day, constant clean up behind other employees, long hours, some times heavy movement of products, rude customers/managers
Nabisco Retail Merchandising Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 1, 2015
In this position you are on call 24/7. There is zero work-life balance. You have unrealistic expectations because you manage over 60 employees and have to please over 150 grocery stores. The district managers place all of their responsibilities on you as well. Mondelez doesn't care about their employees and only wants to cut cost. The culture is horrendous and the objectives continue to get hire so the company doesn't have to pay bonuses. Constant restructuring and motivates by fear. STAY AWAY!!!
Company Car, Hard Working Employees, Fortune 500 Company
Work 24/7, Unrealistic Work Load and Expectations, Cut Throat Culture
Great place for someone to start their career and grow as a person and professional
Senior Service Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Central Jersey – May 23, 2016
As with any large corporation, there are many positives and negatives that go with a job in their Sales force.
Positives include great benefits, opportunity to grow and advance within the company and bonuses and financial awards that compete with any company in its specialization area.
One negative is that a work day is never done in Sales, depending on the region you work in the workload can be very heavy at times. Since I was in a densely populated area, I would spend all my time in the field dealing with shelf conditions and selling to managers. This would leave me having to do most of my extensive computer work at home after work which was not fully paid for. While these sacrifices are normal with any job, they were a little bit excessive.
Great Brands, good people, constant change, getting lean
Sales Leadership (Current Employee) – Field – May 23, 2016
Some of the best brands on the market that almost sell themselves. Still a lot of good people even though many good leaders and employees have left the organization through all the mergers, acquisitions, restructures and downsizes during recent years. Top leaders are very focused on international growth and are implementing a lot of cost cutting measures in the US to get the business model more in-line with other countries. The DSD sales force will continue to be be challenged as resources are increasingly leaned and it becomes more difficult to make the customers needs a top priority. Company is a huge promoter of diversity.
Great Brands, good vacation policy, matching 401k, some good leadership still left
Too big, complex, political, focused on short term profits by cost cutting, too controlling at rep level, limited opportunity for advancement
